This 2000 Expressionist oil cityscape entitled Napa River is by San Francisco painter Jack Freeman (1938-2014). Freeman studied at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, landscape and figure drawing with Oskar Kokoschka's School of Vision in Austria, and received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in the late 1960s. Freeman's style varied between Abstract Expressionism, the Bay Area Figurative Movement, and plein air landscape painting.
